2017 Ontario regional endurance car/driver combos ranked by distance covered. (Driver names omitted for space.) Tire types purely speculative save for a couple of rare exceptions.

Should note that 'breakout laps' were reinstated for the above. Would be interesting to see how sprint race frontrunners compare in terms of the above season totals. Next experiment, then...

2017 endurance entries sorted by starters out-paced at race's end*...

...and by total distance covered*...

By either measure, a true champion effort by the 95 Porsche crew.

IMHO, the 'competitors outpaced' ranking is the better indicator of competitive effort here. Honourable mention in either case to a tour-de-force season by the 147 crew, and to the 101 Cobalt for topping all front-drive entries.

*I may not have corrected all results for laps unscored due to laptime bracket 'breakouts', so reader discretion advised. Tire and weight class specs are also, again, speculated.

Looking forward to 2018!

Nice, thanks for doing this.
#711 Miata is on 200 UTQG rubber. (Hankook RS4)

Cool, thanks. Fixed in the running copy.

I started looking at other data that could be compiled over the season and/or compared with field averages. Here's the TT 3h, for example, ranked by variance against the field's average speed.

As a yardstick for the curious, I added a Sprint frontrunner's total weekend laps and averaged that car's figures for cars outpaced. (The "+/-" figure is a cumulative total of positions gained by the car over the weekend. +/- is not so much of a ranking score, but more of a sideline figure just as it is in stick+ball games.)

Note: as a ranking figure, the season total of cars out-raced is problematic in cases like those of Bois/Caruso's Ariel, which was classified low in the published finishing order thanks to 21 'breakout' laps uncounted by T&S. In reality, the car outpaced the field average by over 22kph (figures pictured below are skewed by hypothetical GT Sprints comparison data), 5th best in the actual field and just one lap down.

Apologies for the image quality, but the forum server's got a 600px max width. Can get around that with some extra effort, FWIW.
